What happens when you mix a fashion designer with a futurist and a filmmaker? Who knows? And half the fun is finding out. Our ‘Connecting’ events are all about hooking you up with your peers for mutual mentoring, ideas-sparking and boundless creative potential.
You’re going solo — but you’re not alone. Meet successful creative entrepreneurs who are happy to share their stories and light your way with signposts and shortcuts. Note their mistakes to avoid your own, while discovering that ‘failing’ is really ‘learning’. And be inspired by their triumphant journeys.
Here’s where you learn to turn your creative vision into its full business potential, through special tools, techniques and tricks of the trade. These lively, interactive events have a strong hands-on element so you can immediately put your knowledge to practical use – to build and boost your business.
